Since its inception in 2007, the Ignition Centre is a leading entrepreneurial service hub that offers education and training in business, career management and computer literacy as well as business mentorship and incubation support for grassroots businesses. TSiBA currently operations two (2) centres located on campuses in Cape Town and at TSiBA Eden in the Southern Cape.

The centres play a transformative role by empowering beneficiaries to 1) start up their own businesses or obtain suitable employment, 2) take their existing small businesses to the next level to ensure sustainable livelihoods and 3) strengthen small business to enable job creation and growth. In addition to strengthening the social fiber of the communities they serve, TSiBA Ignition Centres offer a platform for unique and powerful collaboration between provincial government, the business community and civil society.

The Ignition Centre’s mission is to be an innovative mentoring community that develops confident entrepreneurs who earn sustainable livelihoods, create jobs and drive economic and social prosperity.

The success of our model relies on the generosity of our supporters. If you wish to volunteer, consult, or donate, please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with “IGNITION CENTRE” in the subject line and we will promptly contact you.

The TSiBA Ignition Centre Support Model (above) favors a holistic approach to empowering entrepreneurs that is held together by business mentorship, the axis around which our unique model of support revolves. TSiBA’s Ignition Centres address the two major factors that inhibit the growth of SMME’s in South Africa today: (1) lack of resources and (2) insufficient managerial talent.
